This preseason has been all about surprising walk-on players with scholarships. The USC Trojans were the latest team to make a few players’ days by giving them full scholarships this season.
Bleacher Report shared the video of USC head coach Steve Sarkisian announcing that he was awarding three scholarships to walk-ons. The three players were kicker Alex Wood and wide receivers Christian Tober and George Katrib.
What a great story for these three guys. It was even better that their teammates welcomed them with open arms after the announcement.
The Trojans take the field tomorrow at 9:00 p.m as they host Arkansas State to open the season. Maybe these guys could get some playing time.
